In the future, a planetary-sized logo of ZUFFA will be rocketed into space and orbit the earth, alerting the world of its new celestial ruler. It will then be propelled deep into outer-space and blot out the sun, leaving only subscribers of UFC PPVs access to sunlight. Many plants will die out, farmers will have to relocate to Las Vegas, Nevada and all agriculture will be under ZUFFA control. However, before all of that goes down, ZUFFA plans to control the way you search the internet and they’re starting by requesting the removal of webpages from Google search results.
We stumbled across a Google transparency report that states ZUFFA’s request to protect their intellectual property by restricting links that are shown when certain search strings are submitted to Google. In short, if you search for ‘UFC 154 stream’ on Google, ZUFFA wants you to not be able to see the search results that yield sites that actually have streams to live UFC PPVs (and other copyrighted content).
As of this November, the company has already requested the removal of 1,011 web pages. Feel free to look at the transparency report or check out this screen cap from the number of sites ZUFFA requested the removal of just yesterday.
